Lyrics


Light

Take my hand

And walk in the light

Understand, there's a fire to ignite

You know we have a responsibility

It's true we've been chosen

And now we have the possibility

Of melting what's frozen


Walk with me with the rapture inside

Can't you see it's not our place to decide

You know we have to make a case for love

It's more of a duty

It's clear we have a mission from above

A mission of beauty


You know I wouldn't lie to you

What would I achieve by that

It's more than I would try to do

These are the facts


Take your place here

With love in your heart

Just embrace what you've known from the start

We are fulfilling our only destiny

The angels have spoken

And all the gods in the universe agree

The spell can't be broken
